The Mallacoota Fun Run 2017
The Mallacoota kinder is pleased to announce the Mallacoota Fun Run for 2017 will be held on Sunday 12th March at Betka Beach, Mallacoota in Far East Gippsland, Victoria.
This award winning event has been a huge success for local and visiting runners and walkers and in fundraising for the local kinder.
We’ve got the 2016 race results available for you to see. See the 2016 race results [at RaceSplitter.com]. If you’re wondering what the fastest times were – Jake Pike ran 24:41 in the 5km event, while the first 10km runner to finish was Ryan Cross in a time of 00:38:15. The first half-marathon runner over the line was Reece Edwards in a time of 01:16:07. Amazing efforts! The Mallacoota Fun Run is an exciting and challenging run on a range of surfaces including mulched coastal bush track and short beach crossing. It is undoubtably the running event with the most spectacular views!
We’re bringing back all the extras that make this a memorable day out for all the family – anyone is welcome to join local musicians and school students to encourage runners over the finish line by jumping into the drumming gazebo and playing some percussion and we have the sandcastle competition for the kids with this year’s theme of “Things with Wings”. Stay for the morning and relax after the race with chilled music on the grass at Betka while grazing from our delicious food stall. We have Georgina Davies back doing her amazing pre and post massage! There is great prizes in our fun run raffle (buy tickets at the summer markets or on the day of the fun run) and have a shot of seeing if you can gather the highest sponsorship in aid of our local kinder kids!
The kindergarten families are very proud to have the support of those around us and would like to acknowledge the volunteer efforts of the many individuals, organisations and emergency services personnel who contribute to making this event a success. We also wish to thank all the businesses who sponsor the fun run or donate prizes.
